Well... a stock 540iA (assuming they haven't lost weight over the years) is 3803lbs. I would assume all the mods and crap have added weight, so... 3950.

Not bad. Wonder where all the weight went?

Edit: Actually, that's kind of annoying. You're about a hundred pounds heavier than my car. :mad: :banghead: :mad:

No, rated at 3197 from BMW, mine came in at 3220 at the track. I suspect the added weight is from the moonroof.

Curb weight means full tank of gas with a passenger.

If you assume Jimmy weighs in at about 165 lbs (my guess, he didn't look like a big guy), the spare weighs about 45 lbs, FULL TANK of gas for a total of another 100 lbs...

You're looking at a curb weight of ~4,100 lbs for his 540iA.

Hack:

Really? I didn't know Curb weight means full tank of gas with a passenger. Do you know what for truth? And it also means with a spare tire right?
